Translation Party! - The Game Quiz

Thanks to Wei-Hwa, I started playing around with Translation Party!...  and came up with a way to entertain ourselves while all the BGG.con folks are gone. Here's what he said about it:
For translation back-and-forth fun, is strangely addictive. You put in a phrase and it puts it back-and-forth into Google Translate to Japanese and back, until it "stabilizies." I once put in a bunch of different quotes and created an "identify the original quotes" puzzle:
I really liked his puzzle... and got inspired to create one of my own!

Figure out the names of these "translated" games.
  1. Get
  2. Bad touch
  3. Hooks and crooks
  4. Manic Channel
  5. Chikinchachacha

  20. Warning capacity
  21. Neolithic
  22. Iron flow

Here's the clues:
  • The answers are in alphabetical order.
  • The really difficult one is NOT an obscure game.
  • There is one game that is listed by the least common name out of multiple editions... sorry.
  • The number of words is not necessarily equivalent to the number of words in the original game name.
I'll post the answers tomorrow in a separate thread. Good luck!
